Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Malek's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Jobs, Jobs, Jobs
Excerpt: "Luke believes that business owners have the best knowledge to create jobs, they just need government out of the way. Uncertainty from tax increases and massive legislative agendas hinder the ability of business owners to take risks. This means less jobs."
  • It’s about the economy…
Excerpt: "Leadership can provide a path for economic prosperity. By limiting regulatory roadblocks to growth, listening to the needs of business owners and preserving the values that Idahoans hold dear, Idaho will pull through the tough times we face and come out on top."
  • Improving our future by providing for our children’s education
Excerpt: "Idaho needs to think outside of the box to provide a second-to-none education to our children without bankrupting the taxpayer. We have begun to do that here in Idaho, but much more can be done."
